    Bypass Straight Talk Data limit or Throttle.

    Has anyone seen this video yet?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXXN0b2jf8g

    I'm wondering if this guy is mistaken or what. I seem to remember that Straight Talk was throttling way before they started their BYOP offering. Anyway from what I can gather, here are the settings changes (BYOP vs. ST:Android):

    APN: att.mvno vs. wap.tracphone
    MMSC is the same http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS proxy: 66.209.11.33:80 (rds-proxy.mycingular.net:80) vs. 66.209.11.32:80 (vdispwap2.mycingular.net:80)

    Has anyone tried the android tracphone settings with a Straight Talk ATT BYOP SIM and have had any success? I suppose it is worth a try...

    Or, alternatively, has anyone purchased an Android device (in the video the guy purchased an LG Optimus Logic for $89) and did the SIM swap with any kind of success?

    You can remove the proxy from the APN an receive better speeds and more apps will function however the data limit is still enforced.

    I'm not sure what you mean by that statement. Are you saying that you can leave the APN field blank (null value) and not populate it by either att.mvno or wap.tracphone and that would work as well?

    I'm wondering if, like the Youtube video by danogne10 suggests, if the wap.tracphone APN isn't monitored for throttling in the same way. I'm suspecting that other AT&T MVNO APN's may work as wel (that is, unless, wap.tracphone is T-Mobile or something and the guy that posted the video didn't catch it).

    For example:
    att.mvno
    wap.cingular
    pta (which is the standard data APN for LTE)
    phone (we know this one doesn't work)


    Thoughts?

    I have an iPhone and use the unlockit site for my APN settings att.mvno works as well as proxy.att.mvno the same as straight talks supported APN it is slower and blocks some apps such as speedtest.

    Those are the same settings as my Net 10 BYOP service. You can still be throttled with those setting. They throttled me ( I had throttle removed already). The first BYOP sim I got at Dollar General used the att.mvno apn and when I got hit with a throttle on that sim my speed was 119k solid. A while back I got a new sim from a friend who owns a cellphone shop and it used the new wap.tracfone apn like on the video and when I got throttled again it was 239k this time so maybe the new apn gives a faster throttle but definitely doesn't eliminate it altogether. The only difference is he's using the sim out of a phone vs BYOP like me. That maybe a factor IDK.

    My bet is that he's going to be throttled as well. There is no magic bullet here as far as I can tell. However, the findings are quite interesting. A "faster throttle" is still a better outcome than a slower throttle. I have a feeling that you can mix and match APN settings as long as they're on the AT&T network. I don't believe you have to buy new SIMs. I'm wondering if others would like to try that as well so we can start posting our results.

    For someone who posts on these forums all day every day, you've got the worst spelling and typing skills I've ever seen. On top of that, most of your posts are bitter and unfriendly. You should turn off the computer and go outside dude.

    Re: Bypass Straight Talk Data limit or Throttle.

    On my sim I can't mix and match apn settings. If I try to use att.mvno it wont connect to data at all. I have to use the wap.tracfone apn. When I got my new sim off of my friends shop I had to change apns. I too have the feeling that the Guy in the video will get hit with a throttle at some point if he goes crazy with the data.

    I can attest to the proxy field. When I was running my iPhone 4S on iOS 5.1.1, (before it crashed and I had to restore to iOS 6) I had my proxy field blank and could download apps in the App Store. Now that I'm using the unlockit.nz or whatever on iOS 6 and I can't change my settings (or don't want to go through the bother of doing) I are now that a few things including the App Store don't work.

    Lets go iOS 6 jailbreak .....losin my woody...

    The only "way around" the data throttle I've found is to call customer service, apologize, and request for the throttle to be lifted. I've done this 7 times so far and still haven't gotten my account cancelled.
